amp-pixel component behaves like a simple tracking pixel
img. It takes a single URL, but provides variables that can be replaced by the component in the URL string when making the request. See the substitutions section for further details.
In this basic example, the
amp-pixel issues a simple GET request to the given URL and ignores the result.
<amp-pixel src="https://foo.com/tracker/foo" layout="nodisplay"></amp-pixel>
When processing AMP URLs in the referrer header of analytics requests, strip out or ignore the
usqp parameter. This parameter is used by Google to trigger experiments for the Google AMP Cache.

This attribute is similar to the
referrerpolicy attribute on
no-referrer is the only accepted value. If
referrerpolicy=no-referrer is specified, the
referrer header is removed from the HTTP request.
<amp-pixel src="https://foo.com/tracker/foo" layout="nodisplay" referrerpolicy="no-referrer"></amp-pixel>
This attribute used in AMP4ADS creatives indicates that as part of post validation transformation, an img element may be placed directly within the amp-pixel element allowing the ping to be sent in parallel with AMP runtime fetch/execution. Note that it means that any macros within the url will NOT be expanded so only use if they are not present in the src.
This element includes common attributes extended to AMP components.
amp-pixel allows all standard URL variable substitutions.
See the Substitutions Guide for more information.
In the following example, a request might be made to something like
https://foo.com/pixel?0.8390278471201 where the RANDOM value is randomly generated upon each impression.
<amp-pixel src="https://foo.com/pixel?RANDOM" layout="nodisplay"></amp-pixel>
amp-pixel should not be styled.
